Join us in celebrating Sydney Science Festival & National Science Week at the Library with talks by three experts in their field.
Professor Annabelle McIver – Socially responsible technology
Join Professor Annabelle McIver whose technology research at Macquarie University addresses such questions as: “what does it mean for your data to be secret?” and “what does it mean for an algorithm to be fair?”
Rokiah Alford – Tiny tools for a tiny tradie
Rokiah Alford is a PhD candidate at UNSW Sydney, who will talk about the saws, bricks, cement and delivery trucks of the nano-world, as well as her own addition to the toolbox.
David Bishop – Algae & Motor Neurone Disease
The rate of motor neurone disease in Griffith NSW is approximately seven times the national average, and has been linked to a molecule produced by blue-green algae. Join David Bishop from UTS, and learn how new methods of identifying this molecule has led to its detection in a number of waterways in NSW.
